SkillsUSA sponsors a national recognition program based on the Student2Student mentoring program. Mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, as well as economic opportunities. When a SkillsUSA chapter mentors an elementary- or middle-school classroom, it can mean a lot to the younger students’ future successes.
The Student2Student program recognizes SkillsUSA chapters that are involved in a mentoring program in their communities. Any chapter involved in mentoring can submit its project plan, description and outcomes. The winning chapter will be recognized at an event during the National Leadership and Skills Conference and in the Awards and Recognition book. In addition, the overall winning chapter will be invited to present its winning mentoring program as a part of SkillsUSA University. For more information, go to: www.skillsusa.org/educators/mentrecog.shtml.
All entries must be submitted online to the national office by April 1. Winners will be announced in May.
